                    Court overturns OPD bust

                    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit reversed a lower court’s decision to deny a motion to suppress evidence discovered by Oxford Police Department officers during a malicious mischief investigation in 2007.

                    OPD officers pulled over a vehicle seen leaving the area where someone had thrown something at a window in an apartment complex. Drugs and a firearm were found in the vehicle and Cahafer Benjamin and Kao Wokoma were indicted on drug and firearm charges.

                    The two men filed a motion with the U.S. District Court to suppress the evidence, claiming the officer has no reasonable suspicious to stop the vehicle. The lower court denied the motion, however, on Monday the Court of Appeals reversed their conviction and overturned the denial to suppress the evidence. (November 30, 2010, Page 2)
